Student Support

student supportRecruiting the best medical students by expanding scholarship and loan-aid support is a priority. Contributions supporting student financial aid programs help medical students pursue their dreams of becoming physicians and scientists.

The Financial Aid office awards Institutional Aid funds that are interest-free loans and deferred during school and residency; repayment is at a low-fixed interest rate. In addition, some scholarships are awarded.

Philanthropy plays an important role in student support. Your gift helps reduce a student's overall indebtedness since the loans do not accrue interest from the time they are disbursed or capitalize at the time of repayment.
